Gluten Free Pretzel and Apricot Snack Mix

March 26, 2010

By The Gut Gazette

When I heard that the mystery ingredients were apricots and pretzels, all that kept coming to my mind was some form of trail/snack mix. I was excited that I could put to use my newly bought (as of today) organic dried apricots from the Bulk Barn, and I also now had a reason to go out and buy Mary’s Organic Sticks and Twigs, as I hadn’t tried them until today (product review to come!). Who doesn’t like a good old snack mix? I love snack mixes and one that included apricots and GF pretzels was definitely on my agenda for today.

Gluten Free Pretzel and Apricot Snack Mix:

14 dried organic apricots chopped

1 cup Mary’s Organic Sticks and Twigs Sea Salt, broken into thirds

1/3 cup dried cranberries (mine consist of a mixture of orange flavoured, raspberry flavoured and original)

1/3 cup raisins

1/3 cup Perky’s Crunchy Flax Cereal

1/3 cup soy nuts

1/3 cup dry roasted edamame

1/4 cup gluten free, dairy free carob chips

Mix all together and store in a re-sealable container.

This turned into this:

I’m storing mine in a re-sealable container and keeping in the fridge to keep it fresher.

Chop your apricots like this.

Roasted edamame

Soy nuts!

This is a great little snack mix, you can put it in a bowl for parties, munch on it during a movie, pack it in your lunch or just pack it for a t0-go snack!

You can also add a whole lot of other ingredients, such as:

– other types of dried fruit (apple, mango, banana, prunes, dates, etc)

– different types of nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, etc.)

– seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, hemp, chia, flax, sesame, etc.)

– chocolate chips

– chocolate/yogurt covered raisins

– other types of cereals (corn flakes, rice puffs, etc.)

– cinnamon

– carob powder or cocoa powder to make it more "chocolaty"

The list is endless, use your imaginations and throw anything you wish in!
